this would not be happening? mitt romney had won in november. right, because when g.o.p. is in the white house, deficits don't matter. can you tell us a little bit about the philosophies of the two candidates? well now, the president and the ex-candidate. will the situation be that much different if there was a different man in the white house? guest: well, look, it's an interesting question. it is certainly true that tax policy was one of the key sort of issues in the last election. and actually, the debate that we're having if it sounds familiar, it's because we've had it several times before. it was really a similar debate to what we had in 2008. we had the same debate in 2010. we had a similar debate in 2011 when we were dealing with the debt ceiling issue the first time around. and we dealt it with it in the last election. and the differences have always been that president obama has maintained that tax cuts should be allowed to expire for people making more than $250,000. mitt romney called for extending all the tax cuts fully. and making other changes to the tax code. but, you kno
mitt romney's family, the comments raising a lot of political eyebrows. his son gave an interview to "the boston globe," the newspaper, and unexpected is definitely the word. we'll get into that coming up in just a second. >>> also coming up, the controversial call on "wheel of fortune" that has viewers and a contestant expressing outrage. hear what happened during a final round of the game show that led to disappointment, to say the least. it all has to do with how you pronounce a word. >> being punished for her southern accent. i don't like that. i think she has a legit case. we'll get to that. >>> coming up later, the hollywood heartbreak story that won't reach its final chapter. demi moore's latest divorce demand from ashton kutcher. quite an eye opener. details on that and much more celebrity goodness coming up. stay tuned for that. >>> but first, hundreds of people held a candle light vigil on new york's brooklyn bridge in honor of those who died in the connecticut school shooting. >> the names of the victims were read aloud at the center of that span as the protesters calle
on the planet? >> i was at the romney headquarters election night and when they learned he wasn't going to be president of the united states, he looked sad. he looked like somebody that really wanted this and it was not going to be. so just seeing the reaction and everything that went to it. and tag said that ann tried to convince him of this, too. >> you have to wonder, did he really not -- he could have made choices and said i'm not going to do it. but you have to wonder did he not want to do it or is this kind of, you know, post election -- like i didn't want it any way. i'm brushing it off. i don't know how to interpret that, but interesting article in "the globe." >>> in other news today, a veteran idaho lawmaker is apologizing after being arrested for dui in washington. virginia police say republican mike crepo had a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit. >>> former president george h.w. bush may be spending christmas in the hospital. doctors say he's in stable condition but needs to build up his energy. >>> christmas prayers are going out to nelson mandela. south africans are
to support mitt romney, to try to defeat president obama. they didn't happen. but at the end of the day, they'd still rather make money than win a political argument. so i think that the republicans are potentially making a mistake, holding out this idea that somehow that's the time to use this leverage. that said, you know, having that paralysis -- and that's what we're in right now -- we're in the middle of political paralysis where there's distrust on both sides. there's no -- there's no -- and if you're in the republicans, politically, i sort of get where they are, they see no win for them. any compromise they make with this president is a political problem for them in their own base, their own political bases. you know, that's why you're not seeing the great tip o'neill/ronald reagan moment here because there's no way voters would actually reward the compromise, at least on the right. >> hey, chuck, this is sam. first of all, it looks beautiful there. secondly, you talked about the bitterness -- >> reporter: it's a little chilly, but i'm not going to dpl complain. >> don't complain. you
of sentences. two words from mitt romney reverb greated all the way through november. >> people who have come here illegally won't be able to find work and over time those people would tend to leave the country or self-deport. >> reporter: self-deportation by undocumented workers was not by itself responsible for romney's dismal showing by his sfpanics t it certainly greased the skids. and then there is this. >> there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon him whork believe that they are victims. >> reporter: romney called his remarks completely wrong. they also caused the deepest self-inflicted wound of the election. on the flip side, romney's vp day may have been the best of his campaign. the selection of paul ryan he can cited conservatives in a way romney himself had not. how many moments are there in an hour and a half. the president lost all of them in the first debate. the pictures tell the story of a man who phoned it in, panicking his supporters and providing an opening for romney. and finally, the top three moments of the election best described as history-making politics.

. >> more polarized top to bottom. when you look at the coalitions of the national level, mitt romney won almost 90% of votes from whites, and president obama won over 40% from nonwhites. look at the states on issues like gay marriage or the obama health care plan. blue and red states leading you in very different directions. and you get to congress. the vast majority of leaders are voted in by those who are divided. have you two cohessive coalitions. it's harder to bridge them what is the alternative? we're all here, none of us are going away. we'll find ways to work together or find more self-inflicted wounds like the fiscal cliff. >> the idea, republicans and this is the idea that has been floated, will let us go off the cliff sor they or certain members won't have to raise taxes. >> they will cut taxes retroactive retroactively. >> seems like a bad way to go. >> look, this was a machine built to encourage compromise. and it may get easier for some republicans to come back in january if we go over the cliff. the reason, of course, all the bush tax cuts expire with the cliff, when you c

romney was talking about last year with the 47%. if the tax rates increase you all of a sudden have more people paying income taxes and you just have a broader, higher rate to play with. next year when they come back they can get rid of some of the duck -ts and what not and lower the rates and overall have a lot more money in the system to play with, a lot more options. they think they are better shape for tax reform if they come back next year with the rates having gone up. >> reporter: and by not allowing the president to just add nah see um raise the debt level, they have leverage, don't they? >> they believe so. and the president -- it's safe to say the president realizes that, because he's been insistent throughout that he won't deal with another debt level gamesmanship as he calls it from the last time around. he understands that republicans set a precedent last time when they said every one of these debt level increases has to be matched with real action, spending cuts and other ways to reduce the deficit, that is exactly the fight we are fashion. he doesn't want to have that. rep
question and it wasn't really a debate format and then romney and obama for whatever reason, if it was warren's decision or not, they did not do that this time around. this is the most forthright i've seen rick warren be when asked a political question. >> clayton: yeah, wasn't holding back. he usually do not want to weigh in too terribly much on political questions and tries to elevate the conversation, which he did here as well. but i think that just shows his frustration when you have pastor warren talking that way. it's troubling. fingers crossed. >> gretchen: let's do some headlines now. we have a fox news alert. nato confirming a civilian u.s. contractor shot dead by an afghan police woman in kabul. authorities are treating it as a possible inside job again. at least 52 members of nato forces have been killed this year alone in the so-called green on blue attack where is we train the afghan military and then they turn the guns on the americans. >>> marine veteran recently released from a mexican jail. he and his dad were driving to florida there when he had to be taken
a million to the romney campaign and 9 million to obama's superpac. >> right, look, that's absolutely right. to put it in perspective, that's multiples of the amount of gun manufacturers, getting a lot of unwelcome press, have contributed to republicans. this is one of the biggest single sectors in donations to the democratic party. this is a pillar of democratic party fund raising, the entertainment business, in fact, number one donation to obama's super pac in the last cycle. maybe it's not surprising that the president has essentially ignored the potential effect of hollywood on our attitudes about violence, but it seems to me, any person who is looking at this honestly will reach a conclusion, yeah, we should figure out is there a connection? >> a good thing we're talking about all of these topics today. turker carlson, talk to you soon. >> thanks. >> dave: when we come back, the girl scouts are here with very special songs for christmas. ♪ we wish you a merry christmas ♪ ♪ we wish you a merry christmas ♪ ♪ we wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year ♪ [ male announce
